The Communist Party of China (CPC) holds a grand gathering on July 1, 2011 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to celebrate the Party's 90th anniversary.
The socialist system with Chinese characteristics, which fully embodies the distinctive features and strengths of socialism with Chinese characteristics, is a fundamental institutional guarantee for development and progress of contemporary China. In the course of promoting the self-improvement and self-development of the socialist system, we have put in place a complete set of integrated, interconnected systems in the economic, political, cultural, and social fields. They include the following: the system of people's congresses which is China's fundamental political system; the basic political systems which include the system of multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the CPC, the system of regional ethnic autonomy, and the system of community-level self-governance; the socialist system of laws with Chinese characteristics; the basic economic system with public ownership being the leading sector and economic entities under diverse forms of ownership developing together; and specific economic, political, cultural, and social institutions based on the fundamental political system, basic political systems and the basic economic system. These systems and institutions are compatible with China's reality and conform to the trend of the times. They keep the Party and country full of vitality and fully tap the enthusiasm, initiative, and creativity of the people and all sectors of society. They serve to free and develop the productive forces and promote all-around economic and social development. They uphold and promote fairness and justice and aim to bring prosperity to all. They make it possible to pool resources to undertake major national initiatives, and they can effectively defuse risks and meet challenges on our road ahead. They serve to maintain ethnic solidarity, social stability, and national unity. 中国特色社会主义制度,是当代中国发展进步的根本制度保障,集中体现了中国特色社会主义的特点和优势。我们推进社会主义制度自我完善和发展,在经济、政治、文化、社会等各个领域形成一整套相互衔接、相互联系的制度体系。人民代表大会制度这一根本政治制度,中国共产党领导的多党合作和政治协商制度、民族区域自治制度以及基层群众自治制度等构成的基本政治制度,中国特色社会主义法律体系,公有制为主体、多种所有制经济共同发展的基本经济制度,以及建立在根本政治制度、基本政治制度、基本经济制度基础上的经济体制、政治体制、文化体制、社会体制等各项具体制度,符合我国国情,顺应时代潮流,有利于保持党和国家活力、调动广大人民群众和社会各方面的积极性、主动性、创造性,有利于解放和发展社会生产力、推动经济社会全面发展,有利于维护和促进社会公平正义、实现全体人民共同富裕,有利于集中力量办大事、有效应对前进道路上的各种风险挑战,有利于维护民族团结、社会稳定、国家统一。
We are facing drastic changes in the world and arduous tasks of promoting reform and development and maintaining stability in China. For our Party to unite with and lead the people in forging ahead, make new progress in its work and win new victories for its cause, it must hold high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, keep to and expand the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, uphold and enrich the system of theories of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and adhere to and improve the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. 面对风云变幻的国际形势,面对艰巨繁重的国内改革发展稳定任务,我们党要团结带领人民继续前进,开创工作新局面,赢得事业新胜利,最根本的就是要高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,坚持和拓展中国特色社会主义道路,坚持和丰富中国特色社会主义理论体系,坚持和完善中国特色社会主义制度。
Comrades and Friends, 同志们、朋友们!
Looking back at China's development and progress over the past 90 years, we have naturally come to this basic conclusion: Success in China hinges on the Party. 回顾90年中国的发展进步,可以得出一个基本结论:办好中国的事情,关键在党。
A review of its 90 years of development shows that the following are essential for our Party to preserve and develop its advanced nature as a Marxist political party: The Party should free up the mind, seek truth from facts, advance with the times, take a scientific approach toward Marxism, use Marxism as an evolving theory to guide practice in new realities, uphold truth, correct mistakes, blaze new trails, and maintain the motivation that enables the Party to forge ahead in a pioneering spirit. It should serve the people, rely on them, work for their benefit with heart and soul, draw on their wisdom and strength, and always maintain close ties with them. The Party should appoint officials on their merits, attract as many talents as possible, use our cause to inspire, train, and cultivate high-caliber personnel, constantly absorb new blood, and maintain its vitality at all times. The Party should police itself and impose strict discipline on its members, face its own serious problems and resolve them in a timely manner and thus keep its soundness. 总结90年的发展历程,我们党保持和发展马克思主义政党先进性的根本点是:坚持解放思想、实事求是、与时俱进,以科学态度对待马克思主义,用发展着的马克思主义指导新的实践,坚持真理、修正错误,坚定不移走自己的路,始终保持党开拓前进的精神动力;坚持为了人民、依靠人民,诚心诚意为人民谋利益,从人民群众中汲取智慧和力量,始终保持党同人民群众的血肉联系;坚持任人唯贤、广纳人才,以事业感召、培养、造就人才,不断增加新鲜血液,始终保持党的蓬勃活力;坚持党要管党、从严治党,正视并及时解决党内存在的突出问题,始终保持党的肌体健康。
The entire Party must be keenly aware that at a time of profound changes in global, national and intra-Party conditions, we are now faced with many new developments, problems, and challenges in our effort to enhance the Party's leadership and governance and its ability to resist corruption and degeneration and to withstand risks, and strengthen its governance capacity and advanced nature. We are facing long-term, complicated and severe tests in governing the country, in implementing reform and opening up and in developing the market economy, as well as tests in the external environment. And the whole Party is confronted with growing danger of lacking in drive, incompetence, divorce from the people, lacking in initiative, and corruption. It has thus become even more important and urgent than ever before for the Party to police itself and impose strict discipline on its members. 全党必须清醒地看到,在世情、国情、党情发生深刻变化的新形势下,提高党的领导水平和执政水平、提高拒腐防变和抵御风险能力,加强党的执政能力建设和先进性建设,面临许多前所未有的新情况新问题新挑战,执政考验、改革开放考验、市场经济考验、外部环境考验是长期的、复杂的、严峻的。精神懈怠的危险,能力不足的危险,脱离群众的危险,消极腐败的危险,更加尖锐地摆在全党面前,落实党要管党、从严治党的任务比以往任何时候都更为繁重、更为紧迫。
We must recognize the new realities, continue to guide Party building with scientific theories, study and solve major theoretical and practical issues in Party building in a spirit of reform and innovation, focus on building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and accelerating socialist modernization, fully appreciate and apply the law governing the development of Marxist ruling parties, promote comprehensive progress in the great new undertaking of Party building, and make Party building more scientific. 我们必须从新的实际出发,坚持以科学理论指导党的建设,以改革创新精神研究和解决党的建设面临的重大理论和实际问题,着眼于全面建设小康社会、加快推进社会主义现代化,全面认识和自觉运用马克思主义执政党建设规律,全面推进党的建设新的伟大工程,不断提高党的建设科学化水平。
